Also, the Ibrox side hope to wrap a loan deal for Nigerian striker Sadiq Umar - who has been left of AS Roma's preseason plans - before Thursday.

Concise News understands that the deal is subject to global clearance.

The 21-year-old is highly rated by the Italian giants and after a successful spell in Holland last season, on loan at NAC Breda, scoring five in 12, Sadiq was going to attempt to add to his six senior appearances and two goals for his parent club.

"Steven Gerrard calls, you can't say no", Sadiq told Rangers TV.

The fans already seem to have given him an interesting nickname but I'll let you discover that for yourselves, I couldn't possible repeat the intimation here!
